ChristmasThis week, the CandysDirt.com staff is on a quest to find the listings that provide the best opportunities to hang those stockings with care or display a Christmas tree (or four, we won’t judge).

That includes our Tuesday Two Hundred in North Oak Cliff, with the perfect sunny window for a Christmas tree, and a great layout for entertaining.

The home at 912 S. Rosemont Ave. was pitched to us by Kylah Boyd with Texas Urban Living Realty during our weekly call for pitches over in our Facebook group, Getting the Dirt.

Located between the Winnetka Heights and Elmwood neighborhoods, this three-bedroom, two-bath home has been completely remodeled, having been taken down to the studs, which means it is full of brand-new features despite being built in 1924.
